Abstract Introduction/objective Oral and oropharyngeal mucositis (OM) represents a multifactorial and complex interplay of patient-, tumor-, and treatment-related factors.

A total of 17 papers (950 patients on the whole) met the inclusion/exclusion c...

Purpose To retrospectively test 2 nomograms recently validated as prognostic tools for patients with oropharyngeal cancer treated with curative radiation-based therapy, in 184 consecutive subjects treated from April 2004 to January 2016. Patient and Methods Complete information regarding disease, survival status, and nomogram covariates was retrieved for 174 patients, with a median follow-up of 51 months. Calibration of the nomograms was obtained by evaluating the ability to accurately predict t...
